Using the right skincare hydration products when the weather is cold and dry is the key to maintaining healthy, smooth, and even-looking skin. It’s important to adjust your approach to skincare in cold weather, as frigid temperatures, precipitation, and a lack of humidity can all damage your skin barrier and deplete your skin’s natural oils. This often leads to dehydrated skin, as well as many other skin conditions. Read on for expert guidance on how to improve your approach to skin hydration during the drier winter months.
Upgrade Your Moisturizers and Cleansers
A lot of the skincare hydration products on the market contain harsh soaps, fragrances, chemicals, and other undesirable ingredients that deteriorate your skin’s barrier.
Your skin’s barrier — its outermost layer — doesn’t only protect your body and inner skin layers from external stressors; it also locks moisture in. Additionally, this outer layer is responsible for moving essential nutrients to skin cells so they can flush out toxins, naturally leading to healthier skin.
Senté gentle cleansers and moisturizers are active, efficacious, and potent enough to meet your needs, but they’re also soothing enough for people with sensitive skin. Our soap-free and fragrance-free skincare hydration solutions don’t compromise the skin barrier like other products. Clinical studies have shown that our cleansers deliver the following benefits:
- Helps reduce visible redness
- Helps soothe itching and irritation
- Helps boost hydration
When it comes to skincare in cold weather, using the right cleanser is just one part of the equation. Moisturizing regularly is crucial, but you must use the right moisturizer or you risk doing more harm than good.
Our moisturizer is formulated with antioxidants that help to neutralize free radicals and also offers the following benefits:
- Niacinamide helps to visibly brighten the skin while also promoting a healthy skin barrier.
- Vitamin E replenishes moisture and offers protection from environmental stressors.
Add Hyaluronic Acid (With HSA) to Your Skincare Hydration Routine
Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan (GAG), or sugar molecule, that occurs naturally within the skin, as well as in connective tissues and the eyes. It’s vital to your overall skin health for a number of reasons, including acting as a lubricant, boosting collagen and elastin production, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and helping to prevent skin laxity. The problem is that the production of hyaluronic acid decreases with age.
With those benefits in mind, it’s no surprise that applying hyaluronic acid topically is a popular way to target dehydration, among other skin conditions. Plus, it is very gentle for sensitive skin. If you’re thinking about using hyaluronic acid as part of your approach to skincare in cold weather, you should know why Senté hyaluronic acid skincare products are different from anything else available on the market.
We formulate our hyaluronic acid products with our patented Heparan Sulfate Analog (HSA) technology. Like hyaluronic acid, heparan sulfate occurs naturally in the body and production declines with age. However, its high molecular weight and negative charge prevent it from absorbing into the skin. We created an analog that can be used topically: HSA.
HSA is a molecule that works synergistically with hyaluronic acid, so you can enjoy both skincare hydration benefits. Backed by science and dermatologist recommended, HSA helps enhance your skin’s natural ability to rebuild itself from within. It also provides deep hydration, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduces visible redness, helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier function, and helps boost the skin's immune response to inflammation.
Talk to an Expert for Personalized Recommendations
Using Senté cleansers, moisturizers, and hyaluronic acid products with HSA should help most people overcome hydration challenges all year round, and especially when the weather is cold and dry. That said, we understand that everyone’s skin is unique, and sometimes a more personalized regimen is required.
